"If in location" is evil, don't even try to suggest patches to
allow directives in the "if in location" context.
As for other changes - I can't say I like them as well. We may
consider something as simple as "gunzip always", but additional
types filter certainly looks like an overkill. Rather it should
be some more generic mechanism to require gunzipping, may be
useable by modules directly.
